You would expect to hear “over the ears” at a hair salon, but “rook to queen 4?”
But that’s a phrase that could be spoken at George’s Barber Shop in Toronto. The storefront in the city’s Riverside area will sometimes feature George playing chess with one of his neighbours or customers. In a city full of eclectic pockets and quirky city scenes, George’s chess games add to Toronto’s reputation as a metropolis with an ability to surprise.
If you find yourself on Queen Street East, take a peek and see what you spot that might inspire a slice-of-life photograph.
